Someone Needs to Tell the Ohio State President What Day is Game Day

When you’re going to a basketball game, it is somewhat important to not only know what time it begins, but what day it is to be played. Especially if you’re going to lie about being there.

Ohio State president Gordon Gee got caught in a little twitter fib this evening when he said that he, and apparently many other excited Buckeyes fans, were ready for the men’s basketball game against Wisconsin.

Just one problem. Ohio State hosts Wisconsin tomorrow night.

Remember, this is the same man who once said he just hoped Jim Tressel wouldn’t fire him as an air of impropriety settled over Columbus. Don’t worry, they totally have institutional control.

How did Gee go about explaining the mistake? About as terribly as he possible could:

Good job, good effort.
